Nonsense Non Sequitur Spreads

Sort of like a virus--except that it's a sign of serious logical deficiency, the meme spreads.

Tom McMahon, the acting executive director of Americans United for Change, sends the following message to the Robots.

"The sobering new deficit projections deliver a stark message that the economy is in even worse shape than was previously thought. It also underscores the urgent need to pass the bold initiatives on healthcare, education, energy and the economy laid out the President's budget. If we don't deal with the major underlying problems with the economy and make it possible for business to create jobs, our deficits will only continue to explode. We simply cannot achieve sustainable economic growth without fixing our broken health care system, reducing our dependence on foreign oil, and investing in tomorrow's educated workforce. Bottom line: the most effective way for Congress to begin to regain control of the federal deficit is to support the President's budget plan that is blueprint for rebuilding and renewing America."

Right-o, Tom!! Add a few trillion in DEFICITS to the existing DEFICIT, by attempting a complete hostile takeover of healthcare, education, and energy!

And tell us that these actions will "fix the DEFICIT!!"

Amazing spin and even more amazing cognitive dissonance. Healthcare, oil and education? How about reducing the burden on business and taxpayers?
